How To Make Freezer Jam Three Ways

This post contains affiliate links with Amazon.com.  

Do you make freezer jam?  When I figured out a few years ago just how easy it was, I try to do it every year at the end of summer.
We have a local strawberry farm that we go to every April to drink homemade strawberry lemonade, eat homemade strawberry popsicles and of course, pick the freshest strawberries.  My kids look forward to it every year and lets be honest, so do I!

Blueberry Shortcakes

These Blueberry Shortcakes quite possibly are my new favorite dessert.  You know me.  I don't say that lightly!  And let me qualify that it's my new favorite non-chocolate dessert.  They are super fresh and I felt like a rock star making them completely from scratch.  Don't let the homemade label shy you away from making them yourself.  I promise they are quite simple to create and you'll be thanking me later for sharing this recipe! 
Blueberry Shortcakes topped with whipped cream and fresh blueberries!  A perfect dessert for spring or summer!

Pink Lemonade Slush

This year I discovered these Pink Lemonade Slushes and my whole family loves them.  They are the perfect amount of sweet and sour and very refreshing.  I will also make a batch of these and divide them up into little cups for the kids and their friends to enjoy in the backyard while they play.

Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Ever since I was a little girl Mint Chocolate Chip has been my favorite flavor of ice cream.  Whenever I see it in the store I have a hard time resisting buying it every time.  This summer I was determined to make more homemade ice cream and experiment with flavors.  This Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream may not be extremely experimental, but my process was and I'm excited to share it with you!

Avocado Cream

I'm not sure if I am the only one, but I get a bit obsessive over new foods that I have just discovered.  This Avocado Cream is my new obsession and I can't believe I didn't try it before now.  I'll let you in on a little secret.  I don't like sour cream on it's own.  It there is a dollop on my food (when I go to a restaurant) I will politely scrap it all off and mix any white streaks left over into my food so I can't see it. 
This recipe for Avocado Cream would be fantastic on tacos or quesadillas!  |  mynameissnickerdoodle.com

Easy and Classic Potato Salad Made In The Instant Pot

I'll let you in on a secret.  Every year at this time I try to come up with the perfect potato salad recipe and I seem to fall short.  I either over boil the potatoes, don't add enough dressing or under season the entire thing.
I'm positive I've finally come up with the perfect recipe and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you.  One of the greatest things about it is that it's cooked in the Instant Pot.
